Frank Hutchison-The Last Scene Of The Titanic


Published April 29, 1927


Recorded on April 29, 1927 in St. Louis. The story of the Titanic made a deep impression on people and was the subject of several ballads and tunes. Thus, versions of tunes about the Titanic were recorded by Ray Acuff, Ernest Stoneman, Blind Willie Johnson ("God Moves On The Water"), William & Versey Smith ("When That Great Ship Went Down"), among others. According to Jeff Place, the story of the Titanic "was particularly important to African-American musicians who were strongly aware of the irony that Jim Crow laws had disallowed African-Americans on the ship. It was felt that the owners certainly had received divine retribution."

Seriously awesome guitar here, and seriously awesome song. People who claim to dislike folk music should be strapped down and made to listen to this--for their own health!
